lyrics

I thought I’d be free the day
you emptied your arms of me
but you see I’m starting to suppose
that you never let me go
‘Cause I’ve been in the throws
of a sound wave
now i’m coming up to breathe
and It looks like you’ve always been right
always right about me
Looks like you've always been right
always right about me

That I don't want to be saved! nah
‘cause I’m in love with the waves
And I've kept you waiting too long
And you can be sure
that I’ll come back for more
‘cause if I am a wave
well then you must be my shore

‘Cause for what feels to me like an eternity
you’ve had your hold on me
yeah you’ve had your hold on me
You’re just a part of me
like those marks you leave
when you’ve had a hold of me
when you’ve had a hold on me

I go down to the sea
and let it wash over me
I don’t know why but I feel the pull of the tide
stronger on when I’m on my own
So when I say ‘the armor is
caving in and becoming bone’
It’s just my way of saying
I’m nearly ready to come home
It’s just my way of saying
I’m nearly ready to come home

‘Cause for what feels to me like an eternity
you’ve had your hold on me
yeah you’ve had your hold on me
You know I’ve starting to believe
I have the marks you leave
written all over me
yeah written all over me

So come on take a hold
Come on take a hold
Won’t you come on and get me?
or just let me
let me
let me
Let me go!

‘Cause you have your hold
yeah you have your hold on me
You have your
hold on me
You have your
hold on me
You have your
hold on me
You have your
hold on me
You have your hold
